JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ have to do a lot of maneuvering to avoid the paparazzi when they're out together. But in all the chaos, Justin makes sure Selena never feels like he's ashamed of her. --In an interview for an upcoming episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter", Justin says, quote, "I never make her separate from me because I don't want her to ever feel like I'm ashamed of her. --Because I feel like a lot of guys do that . . . especially in the business. They don't wanna be seen with the girl, so they'll make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff. --If we get away, we're getting away together."
The website Starpulse.com has put together a list of 10 Dysfunctional Celebrity Families. Here they are, in no particular order . . .
#1.) The Lohans. Pretty self-explanatory.
#2.) The Spears. Britney's problems are more than evident. But let's not forget, her sister Jamie Lynn got pregnant at 16.
#3.) The Phillips. "One Day At a Time" star Mackenzie has been battling substance abuse problems most of her life. She also revealed recently that she had a CONSENSUAL sexual relationship with her father, John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas.
#4.) The O'Neals. Dad Ryan was an abusive, substance-abusing A-HOLE, and that rubbed off on his sons Redmond, Griffin and daughter Tatum. He also allegedly hit on Tatum at Farrah Fawcett's funeral before realizing who she was.
#5.) The Barrymores. Drew's mom Jaid was a train-wreck who used to take her daughter partying with her at Studio 54. Drew was smoking by age NINE, drinking by age 11 and in rehab for drugs and alcohol by age 13. --Drew was legally emancipated from her parents at age 15. Her father John Barrymore became a derelict before he died in 2004. Drew is currently on her third marriage.
#6.) The Meesters. "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester was born in the halfway house of a Texas prison, because her mother was serving time for being part of a DRUG RING. --Last year, Leighton SUED her mother over a monthly allowance she was providing for her little brother, who has severe medical issues. Leighton claimed her mom was using the money on cosmetic procedures for herself. Leighton won the case.
#7.) The Hogans. What have we got here: Hulk's sex tape . . . Linda taking up with a kid her son Nick went to school with . . . Nick turning his best friend into a vegetable in a car crash . . . --And then there were those mildly creepy pictures of Hulk putting suntan oil on his daughter Brooke.
#8.) The Gosselins. What more can we say about these morons? They happily put all their dysfunction on TV for our viewing pleasure.
#9.) The Jacksons. Again, where do we begin? Just saying the names Michael and La Toya is enough. Then there was that weird plot by some of the siblings to kidnap their mom and gain control of Michael's estate.
#10.) The Baldwins. Daniel has ongoing substance abuse issues. Stephen used to before becoming a born-again Christian. But God didn't save him from bankruptcy in 2009. --And we all know that Alec has anger issues and a rude, thoughtless little pig of a daughter.
LINDSAY LOHAN'S publicist Steve Honig has quit, but sources say it's not because of anything SHE'S done. It's because of her psycho dad, MICHAEL LOHAN. --When Michael showed up at Lindsay's house for that supposed "intervention", he said Lindsay's team, including her lawyers and Steve, were behind him. --Steve later released a statement saying they had nothing to do with it, and sources say Michael went ballistic on him . . . which was the last straw. --But Steve issued a statement saying Michael isn't the only reason he quit . . . quote, "Michael wishes he were that important." He added, quote, "I'm not discussing this out of respect for my client."
